So I passed the Road Test today, yay! :) Now am a Newly-Licensed Driver and already will have my Young Drivers course completion certificate to show in 2 years time to get to the full license.

Even after all the trials and tribulations from having to wait three months to start in-car lessons after the classroom sessions were done, to having no friends able to help me practice, to having back-to-back colds and a broken toe delaying some of my in-car lessons, to having the most evil instructor in the world, I think it's quite an accomplishment.

My initial goal to get my road test done was the end of December last year, but with the delays of even being able to start in-car lessons, to busting that toe I knew that one wasn't attainable. My next one was set as "to get it before I went on vacation for my sister's wedding".....goal complete :)

oh Paula it is so nice to hear that you got your license! I was only one test away from getting my license, but personal matters (such as a SERIOUS fear of driving, cars and road) made the lessons drag on and and on and on...so I feel your pain! Anyway, I pretty much need to over my fear of cars before I can get mine, but it's nice to hear that you finished it!

thanks! :)

I was going to ask you tomorrow at Melissa's how yours were going!

Yeah after my car accident as a kid the whole driving thing has scared me in quite a few ways too but I was determined to finish it, I had to start reasoning with myself that I've almost been hit by buses or cars several times just as a pedestrian and can't be scared of it forever :)

Now bearing that in mind doesn't mean lots of caution and some element of worry don't still exist when I do drive, they do...and I still have a lot to learn....and hope to practice more by renting cars once in a while and also when I go up to see my family in a few weeks see if my Mom can take me out for a bit to do some things we didn't get a chance to do much of in the YD lessons, like parallel parking etc.

congrats. that new law where you need to complete a driver's training course before you can get the N off is pretty dumb. and it's 2 years now instead of 1?? retarded.

thanks :)

I know! but i sit and think of how the graduated licensing is even scarier in other provinces...

like in ontario you have to pass two road tests....and also for I think one of the years in one of the stages you can't drive on highways besides the no midnight to 5 am and other usual rules etc lol...

alice mentioned something to me not too long ago that they're thinking of changing the NS rules again soon too so it might be a good thing I finished now :)

there have been a couple people here killed while walking on the sidewalks in recent months lol so you might not even want to walk on those ;)

Some old guy up the road I live on, was pinned into a stone wall by some kids that appear to have been driving too fast and went up over the sidewalk into him (though the investigation is still pending)

crazy hmm? LOL
